Headword: *sxali/sai
Adler number: sigma,1766
Translated headword: to suckle
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] to nurse.[1] Also [sc. attested is] a)ni/sxalon ["not having suckled"], [meaning] her who is barren and unable to suckle.[2]
Greek Original:
*sxali/sai: qhla/sai. kai\ a)ni/sxalon, th\n a)/tokon kai\ a)qh/laston.
The headword, evidently extracted from somewhere but extant only in lexicography, is the aorist active infinitive of the verb sxali/zw, I suckle; see generally LSJ s.v.
[1] The gloss is the same form as the lemma, but from the verb qhla/zw, I nurse; cf. theta 333 and see generally LSJ s.v.
[2] The supplementary lemma (which must also be quoted from somewhere) is an adjective, in the masculine/feminine accusative singular and neuter nominative/accusative singular; cf. alpha 2482 and see generally LSJ s.v. a)ni/sxalos. For very similar entries see Hesychius sigma2952 and Photius, Lexicon sigma890 Theodoridis); however, whereas Hesychius glosses a)ni/sxalon as neuter, the glossing in Photius and here in the Suda takes it to be feminine (as translated above). (Photius' faulty transmission of the supplementary lemma as a)ni/sxadon is also the reading, Adler reports, in Suda ms F and elsewhere. This alternative spelling (or perhaps a transcription error from the similarity of the uncial forms for the letters delta and lambda) for the secondary lemma is the headword at alpha 2482.)
